Match Report

Goodlife League Trial V Glenelg Match Report

Our second trial seen us come up against a strong side in Glenelg. The first half saw goals hard to come by, with lots of pressure from both sides causing basic skill errors and our forward entries being forced wide.

At half time we were able to change a couple of minor things both defensively and offensively to try and hit the scoreboard with more freedom. The third quarter the boys started to get on top on the centre square, allowing some good 1 v 1’s, and score conversions. Kicking 6 goals in the 3rd quarter and defensively keeping Glenelg to 2.

Better players on the night were Jordan West, Riley Knight  and Kobe Mutch through the middle of the ground. Jake Von Bertouch up forward kicking 3 goals and Pierce Seymour and Mitch Mead down the back.

It was another really good warm up for the boys  as we continue to evolve as a Football Club. We look to further gelling the group together at our final trial match at Thebarton this Saturday morning against the Adelaide Crows. We look forward to seeing the Eagle supporters there at 9.30AM.
